These days, as much as we don’t like to admit it, we spend most of our time in front of a digital screen.
The average person now checks their phone every 6.5 minutes, and this is ontop of all the time spent looking at computer screens, digital TVs, tablets and every other gadget we have in our lives. The majority of us spend an average of 8 hours connected to some sort of device, adding into a total of 12 hours spent consuming media every day. Digital devices have undoubtedly revolutionized the way we live but they aren’t without their drawbacks.

Although we need light to see, the type of light that our eyes detect has different effects on our bodies. Blue light affects the timing of our body functions, specifically our sleeping pattern. The 5 most common symptoms of digital eye strain from blue light exposure include:
Sore, tired, burning or itching eyes
Sore neck, shoulders or back
Blurred or double vision
The most recommended way to reduce the impact of blue light is to limit screen time. However, we all know that in this day and age, this isn’t always possible. So what else can we do?
